Presentational Skills - An Advanced Training

Join Hedy for a two-day training as she teaches you her guiding principles and use of self to transform your presentations. Convinced that anyone, with the right skills and attitude, can transform their lives and relationships, Hedy will revitalize your presentation skills, and empower you to inspire the groups of people you will be presenting to in the future.

With over 30 year of experience presenting workshops, trainings, lectures, and keynote speeches, Hedy is a master at presentation skills, bringing deep insight and competence to each audience. Hedy continues to be sought out by businesses and professional groups throughout the world. Click here to view Hedy's full biography.

I watch Hedy Schleifer open the room and from the moment we make eye contact I feel in full focus. I feel seen, valued and connected. She is teaching us about Presentation Skills – a very unworthy title! Within the first hour of a two day workshop the transformation begins. Through the power of connection and Hedy’s gentle but unrelenting attention to every detail of my presence, we are discovering together the edge of my growth. I am not alone. There are more than 30 of us.


When I take a big risk to step into the open space and test out my capacity to present to the group I feel a combination of nervous excitement, and complete trust that Hedy will catch me just before I begin to fall. I feel like a little toddler in the exploration stage so excited to explore this new world of authentic connection within a group, yet knowing I can turn back and find those eyes sending messages of encouragement, and support nudging me to step fully into my essential being. What a gift!

Hedy's TED Talk

On Monday, April 26, 2010 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Hedy Schleifer was invited to be one of the influential 20 minute lecturers at the TEDxTelAviv Conference. If you have trouble viewing this video here, you can go directly to http://www.youtube.com/hedyyumi.

Hedy mentioned her upcoming workshop in NYC ( 2/20 and 2/21) on presentation skills.  As most of you know, Hedy has been the most important teacher of my life.  She teaches at a level that Ken nor I have ever experienced before or since.  She doesn’t just share interesting information- she transmits information in a way that lands in you so deeply that it enters your whole being, not just your brain.  That information sticks even years later.  She teaches the art of being truly present to the people or person in the room with whom she is in communication.  I told her that I would let my friends in the NY area who counsel, coach and present know about her training.
